Acer TravelMate P4 in review: Business endurance runner with Thunderbolt 4
The TravelMate P4 scores points with long battery life, relatively low emissions, and a Thunderbolt 4 slot. Windows 10 Pro serves as the operating system. A plus: Acer grants the laptop a three-year warranty.

The Acer TravelMate P4 TMP414-51 is a 14-inch business laptop. The device's technology is housed in a slim metal case that comes in a matte, dark blue (Slate Blue) color. Our configuration variant is available for about 750 to 800 Euros (~$847 to ~$904).

A Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8 GB of RAM (DDR4-3200, single-channel mode), and a 256 GB NVMe SSD (M.22280) equip the laptop for office and Internet use. However, the device falls short of its capabilities, since its RAM only runs in single-channel mode. Installing a second memory module (= dual-channel mode active) would have an impact on performance - the graphics performance would improve significantly.

The built-in 56 Wh battery is sufficient for a WLAN runtime of just under 10 hours. Positive: Not only can the laptop be powered via the included proprietary power adapter, but also with a universal USB power adapter. The USB-C port makes this possible. The latter is a Thunderbolt 4 port that supports DisplayPort via USB-C and Power Delivery. In addition, it enables connecting extensive docking solutions or an external GPU.

Acer offers TravelMate variants that are equipped with an LTE modem. Our review sample is not one of these variants. An upgrade wouldn't be possible, since the necessary slot, LTE antennas, and SIM card slot are absent.

More information and many benchmark results are available in our review of the Acer TravelMate P4 TMP414-51-59MR.
